Adam Waleskowski sandwiched a left-handed hook and a dunk around two free throws by Tim Pickett in the final 20 seconds last night as Florida State upset No. 5 Duke in Tallahassee for the second straight season, 75-70.
Florida State (11-8, 2-6 ACC) moved out of the league's basement with the victory while handing the Blue Devils (14-3, 4-3) their third straight conference road loss.
Last season, the Seminoles shocked then-No. 1 Duke with a 77-76 victory that ended the defending national champions' 22-game winning streak.
Pickett's free throws gave Florida State a 73-70 lead with 9.9 seconds left and Duke raced down the court looking for a tying three-point shot, but Chris Duhon slipped and fell in front of the Duke bench, losing the ball with six seconds left and leading to the game-ending dunk by Waleskowski.
